Lincoln East has an amazing group of teachers that really go out of their way to make sure you are learning and getting the help you need. Not only are they great at teaching, but they are great people too! They are always willing to join in on fun school competitions or fundraisers. The sports are pretty good too, so going to a sporting event is a big part of the community. There's also a club for anyone and allows to meet new people. Overall, I truly believe it's the best public high school in Nebraska.

I am a junior at Lincoln East High. I have loved my high school since the first day of school. It is not easy having a student body of over 2,000 students and navigating the halls but somehow I still manage to find friendly faces and have made plenty of friends. The teachers are top notch. They are always available for help and willing to make the high school experience enjoyable. As I am navigating my college options, my guidance counselors have also helped me find sites for scholarships. I love my school!
East High is anything and everything, except a bad high school! Friendly faces, great staff, and great academics all encompass the swell experience that is Lincoln East. Multiple benefits of East high include a great span of activities, great athletics, and academic benefits like academic hour, an hour long period after school in which students can get homework help from teachers and other students. My primary concern would be with the student mentality. Most experiences my peers rarely involve academic significance. I simply wish there were extra programs, or at least extra advertising of, academics, or new ways to develop talents, or someway to motivate students to lead to a brighter academic future.
